    I thought there was no KO yet, but I read about an alert on another site, even with pictures and comparisons, but I haven't seen any picture in-box or any other report about it on sale anywhere.

    There is and you can tell it's a KO if his eyes and face are darkened but you may want to check if it does have all of his parts first. Mine came without Saber's cockpit that forms Star Saber's sword.

    A shame really cause TT left a lot unfinished for Takasa Tony to fix.

    There was a rumor of one once the price dropped in china. Not sure if true or not. I just got another from eBay in preparation for Simba and I can't tell a difference

    I am pretty sure there is. I thought I recall seeing eBay sellers listing a KO star sabre for about $100. Given that they explicitly said it was a KO, I'd assume they knew what they were selling.

    Don't recall the box art, but I don't think it was a Takasa tony special

    Maybe they were factory rejects or something, if they had missing parts or QC problems.

    I think the original is still available for a reasonable price, and he's a really neat figure. Personally I want a black re-deco in the E-Hobby colours.

    There absolutely is. Im pretty sure all the ones on ebay from China are KOs. My only KO is Star Saber so I know they exist.

    These are straight up KOs, Box is Takara Tomy, will let you know if the ratchets are better than the official when I open mine. I only brought one to go wth KFCs LeoKaiser. It wasnt a character I wanted until now.

    well they are the only ko's on ebay where the sellers don't say they are ko's in the listing then as i just had a search on ebay

    show me these ko's i want proof

    how much did you pay and who from?

    "edit" how will you be able to tell the difference in ratchets if it's the first time buying the figure?

    Because I saw the video of the official copy with the floppy arm holding the sword and the floppy midsection when weight is on its back.

    There are also comparisons on this site if you search. I actually asked and info was provided by a member. Most notably the use of one mold for both small wings instead of a left and right marked peice on TTs, differences in the rear thrusters, diecast guns, chrome finish on sword, no ratchet on head.


    Hope that answers your questions. And No, they dont call them KOs because they want to pass them off as originals which is what I always thought a KO tries to do. This Takasa Tony stuff is funny, if it wasnt for the name on the box and collector card, many would not know its a direct copy. So they figured why change the name on the box, we can charge more for it if we dont.

    Nah. Most KOs these days, especially MP KOs improve on the original product.

    well like i said its "THE ONLY KO" that does not have ko in the description ... alll the car bots, mp10 , and the recent seeker ko's that copy the box ( not kbb or bb7 ) have it in the description so why are all the sellers not trying to pass them off as originals why is it only the rumoured ( because thats what it is ) star saber thats being passed off as an original? why becaue they are not ko's and you have still not supplied any proof i want proof and links as i still can't find what you say is out there

    unfortunately I got one of these K.O Star Sabers. Most of the ones from chinese seller are K.O. I don't remember the price but I got it from the seller nick named suncn2010. There was a comparison in one of the topics here but I can't find it. I painted the dark eyes it looks better but still not like the original one. :cool:

    On the KO I got yes joints are better so I did a swap out. I also bought from http://myworld.ebay.com/suncn2010 he's listing them as official and they're all KO's it seems. He's supposed to send replacement parts and refund me but hasn't as of yet. So I may be contacting eBay shortly.

    Only positive were the stronger ratchets in the legs and arms.
